Almost All Cat Christmas Tree
This is probably one of my first cat ornaments. I started my collection after I adopted Jake. This is a custom made ornament of Jake.
Jake’s ornament turned out so nice that a few years later after we adopted Micah, I tracked down the artist to create one of Micah.
One year for Thanksgiving we had the then little girl from up the street watch the cats for Thanksgiving while we traveled back East. When we got home we were delighted to find these ornaments that she made for each cat taking tiny polaroid photos of them. The ornaments have 2 sides. Jake’s ornament says hungry cat with a photo on the back because that describes how he used to be when people would cat sit him.
Micah’s ornament says sleepy cat on the back with a photo because he didn’t like being cat sat and pretended he was sleeping every time she came to visit him.

I tear up when I put them on the tree now.
This is one of my vintage looking cardboard cat ornaments. I have a pretty extensive collection. These are great for at the bottom of the tree along with the wooden ornaments that able to stand up to swatting by curious paws.
This is one of my collection of Purr-fect Little Angels kitties from Bradford Exchange. They have lovely wings made of real feathers.
Along with Micky, my shining star!
So those are a few of my cat ornaments. I have many many more, made from metal, wood, glass, porcelain and paper. Each year I look for new ones to add – as tasteful and unique as I can find. So every year when we trim the tree we remember the cats of Christmas past and all the lovely places we found wonderful cats.
